Known for her fog sculptures, the Japanese artist Fujiko Nakaya will shroud a landmark of modern architecture in her favored medium when she presents Veil at the Philip Johnson–built Glass House. The structure, a National Trust Historic Site, celebrates its 65th anniversary this year, and from May 1 to November 30, for 10 to 15 minutes every hour, it will be enveloped in a cloud. Tickets start at $30. 203.594.9884, www.theglasshouse.org
